Bret Michaels OK After Tony Awards Injury

After the metal band Poison took the Tony Awards stage to perform in the show's opening number with the cast of ROCK OF AGES, musician and reality TV star Bret Michaels ran into a set piece on the stage, causing him to fall backwards and appear to be seriously injured.

At the end of the band's performance of "Nothin' But a Good Time", Michaels was hit in the head by a descending piece from the show's set, causing him to fall backwards. The good news is that the singer emerged from the awards show with only minor injuries, a publicist for Michaels told The New Times this morning.

Brett Michaels will continue his solo tour this month, and is scheduled to tour with Poison and the band Def Leppard later this summer.
